obam has to connect those two things. he can't get defensive. the president, on the other hand, has to deflect from that. he has to make the debate about the choice between himself and governor romney and press him about specifics. try to make the argument that the -- that governor romney's policies would take us off of a path of recovery we might be on right now. and he can't get defensive as well. both men, when they get into the defensive posture, tend not to do very well in debates. >> what do you think is the most treacherous ground for each of them? what is the thing often -- i'm sure you've studied a zillion hours of debate tapes. what triggers debates in both of them? >> when both get on defense, when they have to defend positions they're uncomfortable with, they tend to get defensive. that's what caused the $10,000 bet with governor romney and that what caused the moment where president obama, then senator obama, told hillary she was likeable enough. i think both of them, when put on their heels, tend to make mistakes. >> let's play a clip of that from the hillary clinton/b

consequences of that and on the republican side there's got to be some more revenue and defense is going to take some kind of a hit and that's going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. fred, if you were sitting down with harry reed or glenn if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell and they're about to go in the room and get a lot of blood on their hands and be ankle deep in blood, not to be too vivid, but what would you tell them to be mindful of? >> that's a very good question and i think it's going to be hard to answer it for a lot of reasons. one of which is the function of time. the other thing it would be presumptionous of me. >> glenn and i are smart guys and well read, we have good tastes in movies apparently. and we know policy. but look, we're also political people and we're paid to give political advice. so my advice would be don't have people lock me in the room. and we are paid or not paid to sort of point out all the different angles. and i really believer there are times in our country where you're not looking for abcd you're looking for a to z. i'm reading a b
60 or 70 million people. the president did not play to offense or defense wednesday night. he didn't defend himself against charges that mitt romney made of his administration that have been fact checked time and again on the president's side. and he didn't play offense. he didn't give a sense where he wanted to go. judy, vice presidential debate does matter because the democrats can't lose two in a row. they really can't. i think joe biden is in a stronger position because he has spent a lot of time, four years, defending, explaining and making the case for barack obama whereas paul ryan is in an awkward position. he's going to defend, make the case to mitt romney whom he has basically been joined to the hip at six weeks ago. and you know, he's got the whole independent political identity himself. i mean biden obama as a team at this point. but i think that the president, is just going to forget the first debate and be ready in the second one to make his case. and to engage. he wasn't ingauged. if you turn down the sound on wednesday night and just watch tho two people, he is did
a different story but to be flat cut off by the secretary of state and secretary of defense. i wanted to hear from the president. the president has been silent. statements said he was attacked. the ladies of view, he used to give a speech laying out case because so far his administration has dropped the ball on this. >> brian: i don't think it's going to go anywhere. we have to find out why security wasn't bolstered up. president had a strict briefing that something could be happening on september 11th. >> that true but the issue is what susan rice said. if barack obama is re-elected it's rumored, it is rumored that clinton will be next secretary of state -- susan rice may be the next secretary of state and he is either a fool and tool of the white house and she has to answer for herself. >> you have to look at her words. what she says her current assessment. same language that was used at 9/11. it is not smart for any administration that doesn't have information to go on national television and started talking about things they don't know. what we know right now. benghazi government has reco

christie. two years ago. in my defense, people still thought varius congressmen who didn't even run were going to be the candidates. it was two cpacs away from the presidential election. because it's so hard to beat an incumbent president, i still love chris christie and i hope he does run for president someday. he was so brave in the way he took on the public sector unions the way no republican had ever done before and everybody loved it. and he was just so articulate and bright. and he had become this star. i thought we would probably lose this election. because you can't take out an incumbent. especially one who's personally likable as obama is. and then for one thing, chris christie made it very clear he wasn't running, but i supported romney back in 2008. and i changed my mind about being able to beat obama. though i don't think anyone could have done it. and mitt romney is not only best candidate to run against obama because in the past, he has basically forced his opponents to default. he did when he ran for the illinois legislature. he did it when he ran for the senate. he forced
